Deadly crash at Queensboro Bridge
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY)
A driver is dead after a crash on the Queens side of the Queensboro Bridge.
The crash occurred on Tuesday at about 1:52 a.m. at Queens Plaza South and Crescent Street.
The driver, a 36-year-old woman, was coming off the exit ramp of the bridge when she struck a guard rail and cement barrier. The 2004 Ford Focus overturned and then slammed into a store front on Queens Plaza South, according to the NYPD.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Motorists were warned to expect delays into Queens for the morning rush. Only the inner roadway was open on the lower level.
The site of Tuesday morning’s crash was the fourth serious vehicle collision in the same location at the Queensboro Bridge since 2011.
